The 2022 State of CSS survey ran from October 1 to November 1 2022, and collected 14,310 responses. The survey is run by me, Sacha Greif, with help from a team of open-source contributors and consultants. This year's logo and t-shirt were reused from last year, when they were designed and animated by Christopher Kirk-Nielsen.

Survey Goals

This survey, along with the State of JavaScript survey, was created to identify upcoming trends in the web development ecosystem in order to help developers make technological choices. As such, these surveys are focused on anticipating what's coming over the next few years rather than analyzing what's popular now, which is why the features or technologies that are currently most widespread are not always included. Additionally, survey data is also used by browser vendors to prioritize features and inform initiatives such as Interop 2022.

Survey Design

This year, survey design was lead by Lea Verou thanks to a funding grant from the Google Chrome team, and managed publicly on GitHub. All survey questions were optional. Additionally, going forward we will also coordinate survey design, review, and feedback through a Working Group mailing list.

Survey Audience

The survey was openly accessible online and respondents were not filtered or selected in any way. Respondents were primarily a mix of respondents from past surveys (alerted through a dedicated mailing list) and social media traffic.

Project Funding

Funding from this project comes from a variety of sources:
